2019 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Raffled off by UNOH

Written by Communications Specialist Georgia Beard

The anticipated Centennial raffle came to conclusion Friday, December 4th. One lucky winner had the chance to win a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Sahara that Dr. Jeffrey Jarvis unveiled back in January at the ‘Toast to the Centennial’ Opening Ceremony event.

2020 was an eventful year for the University of Northwestern Ohio. The year of full of events had to be cancelled one after another, due to CDC restrictions and in the best interest of the health and safety of our UNOH family during the global Coronavirus pandemic.

Even though COVID-19 cancelled the year of celebration, UNOH's Drive for Excellence through education was honored more than ever. UNOH’s faculty, staff, and students came together when courses had to move online. Then again five months later, when in-person classes could resume with proper precautions in place. The year was full of determination and challenges, which made UNOH an exciting and dynamic place to learn and work.

Originally the winner of the Jeep Sahara was to be announced in-person at the Closing Ceremonies event, but instead was announced via video message on the University's social media outlets. A special thank you goes out to Tom Ahl’s Family of Dealerships for making this giveaway possible, and to all the individuals who purchased a ticket. Congratulations to the winner, Steve L. from Canada, for being chosen as the lucky new owner of UNOH's Centennial Jeep!

UNOH could not have been as successful over the past 100 years without the support from past and present students, employees, faculty, and UNOH family all over the world.
